Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Midgard ships all black, inside and out. It is build from steel mostly, but is accented in both plastic and mesh; both also in all black. The Midgard stands just over twenty inches tall and is just less than nineteen inches from front to back. This is a mid tower chassis, but will accept both ATX and mATX motherboards. The Midgard takes a standard power supply in the bottom of the chassis and is isolated by a foam membrane adhered to the inside. Lastly, before we move on to the cooling, there is the possibility to house up to five 5.25" drives and five 3.5" drives. The trays that work for installing the HDDs are used for both 3.5" and 2.5" drive installations.
Cooling out of the box consists of a fair bit of mesh to allow for both a good source of intake air through the front, but convectional flow out the top through more mesh. Behind the front mesh is a supplied 120mm XLF-F1253 fan to pull air in, and another strapped in the back to exhaust the warm air out the back. On top of the supplied fans, Xigmatek added plenty of "options" to cooling. In the rear is four water tubing knock-outs so you can have a choice of which ones to use. The door panels are also full of options for adding fans. These panels can utilize 80mm, 90mm, 120mm and 140mm fans, depending on the hole you want to use.
Searching the World Wide Web, I ran into this chassis listing at about five locations currently. One of the cheapest deals, and from a much more reputable company, I found the Midgard listed at Newegg for $74.99, and there is a windowed version of this chassis that can be found for the same price. Offering a lot of tool-less features and being painted throughout, makes this not a bad option in this price range. Newegg is getting another $25 to ship either version, making this a $100 purchase. Let's get a look at the Midgard and see if this is the $100 chassis for you.
